Some Broad Objectives for Chapters:
Procedure to Follow in Establishing a GUAA Chapter:
Gallaudet alumni are very important to the University. The Federal Government, large companies and foundations, other colleges, foreign organizations, and other individuals are often interested in learning what the University has done for its students, its alumni, and for deaf and hard-of-hearing people in general, but their interests do not stop there. They also ask what the Gallaudet alumni have done, or are doing, for the University.
Gallaudet's alumni do much for the University. They are annual donors, they maintain and attribute their successful careers to the education they received at Gallaudet University, they support their communities through involvement in their local GUAA Chapter and/or other organizations. Each Chapter maintains its own system of serving, socializing, and publicizing its affiliation with Gallaudet University. Listed below are some ideas and suggestions Chapters can adopt.
Celebrations: Celebrate special Gallaudet dates by sponsoring banquets, brunches, plays at schools, etc.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
